On April 5, the TFS Alumni Association welcomed alumni from graduating classes spanning from 1977 to 2012 to the annual networking event at Bar Batavia, owned by TFS alumna Jennifer Gittins ʼ86. The evening was also a chance to meet Dr. Josep González, Head of School.
Jennifer, who currently owns three popular venues in midtown Toronto, shared her vast experience in the restaurant business and discussed the special brand of entrepreneurship needed to thrive in the industry. While enjoying drinks and sampling authentic Indonesian fare, alumni had the opportunity to ask her questions about the unique challenges and rewards of owning and running restaurants. Our guests then played a few rounds of trivia, with the winning team drawing for a gift card for Little Sister, Jennifer's food bar concept right below Bar Batavia.
Thanks again to all of those who came out and to Jennifer for hosting. Stay tuned for our next exciting networking event!
